Recent guest reviews

This is a nice hotel and close to SIU-C. We went down for a college visit. It was only 20 mins from the campus. It was clean and comfortable.

Room is very clean and spacious. Hotel is free from cigarette smoke/odor. Hot breakfast was substantial and decent.

Close to highway and near plenty of restaurant no complaints.

cleanist hotel I have ever been to, walked into the room and it smelled liked fresh laundry. Looked like new carpeting through out the hotel and freshly painted doors and walls. Excellent breakfast and very comfortable beds and comforters.

Updated rooms with comfortable bed. Good selections for the free breakfast. Breakfast staff were very efficient and kept food filled and fresh. Great place to spend a night.

The staff here is excellent! Friendly and caring. The hotel is newly renovated and is very good condition.

The hotel room was very nice. The bed was really hard and my back was hurting the next day. I also did not like the complimentary breakfast. It was not pleasing at all. This is were they need improvement. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.

Had a bunch of laundry to do and they found me a laundry close to the hotel. P.S. love the free cookies.

Stayed here on our family road trip from Wisconsin to Florida. It was a great value and location. Happy with the continental breakfast and other amenities. We're looking at at hotel stop for this year' strip to Florida and plan on booking a room here again!

We arrived late - the desk manager was very helpful. She gets 5 stars; I took 1 away for the length of time it took to get extra towels the next morning. In spite of the clean, modern and comfortable room, I feel that it was expensive, for the area.

Room was great. The breakfast left alittle to be desired considering what you pay for the room. That is my only concern. great staff and helpful.

Hotel was good as expected . Never had a bad country inn hotel in any of my stays while on vacation.

We had a late check in at 11 pm. Staff was very nice and pleasant even at that late hour. Bed was very comfortable and morning breakfast was incredible.

Clean room and excellent service. Location is convenient. Next to Interstate 57.

One of the best hotel stays I have ever experienced. The staff was extremely friendly and even offered us fresh cookies at check in. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was super comfy and the floor we stayed on was very quiet. The free breakfast was wonderful. I cannot think of a single negative with this hotel.

Very clean. Friendly staff. Great breakfast choices.

we came for a church womens conference. we had to dress up and they allowed us to check in at 12:30 so it helped things start out well for us. the local paper came to do an article on the conference and it was in the paper the next morning. we read it while we enjoyed breakfast.

Perfect place to stay when visiting SIU University.Good selection for food near hotel. A solid 10 to 15 minutes to the university.Clean hotel very new 1 to two years old(check with hotel for exact time)Will stay again for upcoming events at SIU University.

great staff, clean hotel, little pricey

The hotel had friendly staff, immaculate rooms that were well-appointed for a hotel in this price range. We didn't get a chance to use the pool or fitness room, but both were very clean and inviting. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful, served by a "southern grandma" whose goal was to make sure we all left full and satisfied. They even had food appropriate for someone on a diabetic diet. The no smoking policy was great!
